I made a decision today to reset my computer. Everything went well and for not too long of a time.

But... I now have those stupid games installed ,(Bubble Witch, Candy Crush Soda, etc).
I click on,"Uninstall" and they disappear. But then reappear again. Over and over and over.

I am a little upset by the audacity of Microsoft to insert these ...

Never mind, my question is, how can I get rid of these %*#%@ things?

Thanks for reading

In settings Security and Updates, Windows Update click on Advanced Options and uncheck the top box Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows. I uninstalled the same apps and don't recall them being installed with new updates.

If I am not mistaken, those games are not updated by Windows Update rather than updated through the store...

open settings - Apps.- Apps and features.
go down the list to each one/game you wish to be rid of. Click each one and it will offer the option to uninstall.

Well, I think I finally got rid of them.
Rather strange, but I would uninstall one game at a time, and then restart Windows 10 after each uninstall. It seems to have gotten rid of them.
I will mark this as solved,but it is still a mystery to me.

I maybe somethings, but not a mind reader!
" click on,"Uninstall" and they disappear. But then reappear again"

You did not give details, but this and your comments, indicated to me you had only tried it with a right click option in the start menu!

I do appreciate you answering my post. That's what these forums are all about. I didn't mean to be critical of you.
Have a nice day, Dave.
